Legal Counsel - Commercial

United Kingdom

Newcastle United Football Club

About the Role

Newcastle United Football Club have ambitious plans to top the Premier League and become a global force in the game.

To achieve our goals, the Club is scaling the business and needs to build a high-calibre, robust legal department. Initially, we are looking to recruit a mid to senior level associate to take ownership of all commercial contracts and provide high quality advice on a diverse range of commercial, legal and compliance issues that impact the operations of the Club.

This is a unique opportunity to join Newcastle United at the start of our exciting new journey, and to play a key strategic role in helping us achieve our goals.

The ideal candidate will have a high quality academic background and robust legal training from a reputable law firm or recognised in-house legal department. Significant experience drafting, reviewing and negotiating a wide range of commercial agreements is a must. As a guide, this role would suit a solicitor with circa 3-5 years' post qualification experience, though we would welcome applications from outside this range who can demonstrate relevant skills.
